Modelling of Mechanical Systems: Fluid-Structure Interaction
- Francois Axisa, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at ENSTA, France
- Jose Antunes, Researcher at the Institute of Nuclear Technology (ITN, Portugal) and Visiting Researcher at Centre d'Etudes Nucleaires de Saclay (CEA, France)
Written by an eminent authority in the field, Modelling of Mechanical Systems: Fluid-Structure Interaction is the third in a series of four self-contained volumes suitable for practitioners, academics and students alike in engineering, physical sciences and applied mechanics. The series skilfully weaves a theoretical and pragmatic approach to modelling mechanical systems and to analysing the responses of these systems. The study of fluid-structure interactions in this third volume covers the coupled dynamics of solids and fluids, restricted to the case of oscillatory motions about a state of static equilibrium. Physical and mathematical aspects of modelling these mechanisms are described in depth and illustrated by numerous worked out exercises.
